‘GET SERIOUS!’ Boris Johnson orders EU to STOP messing around and UNBLOCK Brexit talks

16 Oct

He said: “Obviously we think in the UK that it’s time to get on with these negotiations, that it’s ready for the great ship to go down the slipway and onto the open sea and for us to start some serious conversations about the future and the new relationship, the deep and special partnership that we hope to construct that I think will work very much in the interests of both sides.  

“And people say to me ‘we want to reassure the 3.2 million EU nationals in the UK and the one and a bit UK nationals in the EU’ and so do we, and we’ve made a very good offer, we’ve made a very fair and you know we think it’s a reasonable point of view that we’re outlining. 

“Let’s give them that reassurance, let’s put a tiger in the tank, let’s get these conversations going and stop letting the grass grow under our feet. We hope very much that our friends and partners will take that message and really begin some serious negotiations.” 

British negotiatiors increasingly see Mr Barnier and many of the smaller EU member states as their allies in a power struggle against France and in particular Germany – the two countries currently blocking the opening of trade talks.
